Big Chief Studios’ Ninth Doctor Unveiled!

We love Big Chief Studios’ Doctor Who figures – they may be expensive, but they’re also pretty darn awesome and certainly screen-accurate.

Founded in 2011 by Mark Andrews and Tony Leetham, industry professionals with more than thirty years experience working with licensed brands, and they’ve made articulated models of various characters in Doctor Who, including the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, Amy Pond, and, shipping now, a Weeping Angel. And soon: Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor!

The company, which has recently expanded to include Sherlock figures and art prints, revealed the figure on Twitter.

But you don’t just get the figure, of course – there are some great accessories that no Time Lord should be without. (Also some Time Lords don’t typically carry with them, but are cool anyway.)

There’s the key to the TARDIS; the Vortex Manipulator, courtesy of Captain Jack Harkness; a metal spider from The End of the World; a banana (bananas are good!); anti-plastic, used against the Nestene Consciousness in Rose; two versions of the sonic screwdriver; and Blon Fel Fotch Pasameer-Day Slitheen from Boom Town.

Obviously, these all come from Series 1 (2005). Also from 2005 is this:

Fantastic, eh? (Sorry.)

We can only guess how much the Ninth Doctor figure will be, so based on previous examples, we reckon it’ll be between £150 and £200.
